Joe Frank - R.I.P.
Joe Frank was brilliant. I want to say that he was hugely influential in my life. And maybe he was. But he never turned me on to a new band, or gave me words to live by. He didn't make me start exercising or quit smoking. I spent hours listening to him, but I didn't learn a single quantifiable thing from it. But he was influential. He lit up parts of my mind that would have otherwise remained in the dark. Hearing Joe Frank's work was like seeing a Francis Bacon painting for the fist time. You can't say what has changed within you, but you know you will never be the same. Thank you, Joe Frank.
